A note from Dr. Christina Mazzone, Owner and Lead Dentist at Children's Dental Specialists
I was the kid who’s first dental visit was not stellar, and at the age of 5 I was referred to a pediatric dentist. There was such a thing as a pediatric dentist!
Throughout my years of early employment, I have always worked with kids. In fact, my very first job was hosting birthday parties at Chuck E. Cheese. My longest standing job was as a lifeguard, teaching swimming lessons to all ages and certifying teens in CPR and First Aid as well as becoming lifeguards.
Who knew all these experiences have shaped me towards a career with kids?
Teaching came easily to me, so the most natural career choice in college was to be a teacher. With a Biology major and Chemistry minor, I was going to be a middle school science teacher. After completing all the required teaching courses, I had a change of mind. You can ask me all about it!
So off to dental school I went, and of course a residency in pediatrics.
I have fond memories of my pediatric dentist, but I wanted to do it DIFFERENTLY!
No Scrubs. No white lab coats. No eugenol smell! A place where kids are excited to come to the dentist and their parents are at ease. A place where dentistry is made FUN!
Why Choose us?
Children's Dental Specialists is a premier dental facility focused on caring for tots through adults and those with special needs in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. We strongly believe that a positive dental experience during early childhood will result in good oral habits that will last into adulthood.
Children's dental issues are very different from the ones adults tend to have. Pediatric dentists complete two or three years of additional specialized training (after the required four years of dental school), which includes studies in child psychology and growth and development. This means we are the most highly trained and uniquely qualified dental professionals to treat children’s dental problems and maintain their good oral health.
Our pediatrics team here at Children's Dental Specialists are also trained and qualified to care for patients with special needs.
At each appointment we strive to educate and coach our pediatric patients and their parents for a lifetime of good oral hygiene and dental health. All education and treatment is provided in a positive and fun environment.
Children's Dental Specialists also provides adults with complete comprehensive dental care. We strongly believe in providing a positive dental experience in a personalized and comfortable setting using the latest technology to provide a very gentle experience, quality care, and minimal time in the chair. Our adult dentistry team focuses on the unique and more complex dental conditions that can occur in adults.
We strive to provide an engaging environment in which all of our patients will develop a positive attitude toward dentistry and keep a happy smile.

Dr. Mazzone and the entire staff are the absolute best! My daughter is not a fan of going to the dentist and and Dr. Mazzone and her whole staff are so incredibly patient with her. She had to have a lot of work done today and I was dreading the appointment, but it was the best one yet! They were even able to get more done than anticipated. I cannot recommend them highly enough!!

I couldn't have stumbled across a better pediatric dentist for my son! The people are warm and friendly, the building makes you feel at home and it's so nice and clean. I actually enjoy my 30 minute drive to get there because I know it's worth it!
Dr. Mazzone and the staff of Children's Dental Specialist NJ are absolutely amazing. They are kind , considerate and work patiently with my son who has special needs. They don't do unnecessary and costly procedures on either of children and every detail of their treatment is explained in full. I could not ask for a better team.
